Community levels for COVID-19 are updated by the CDC every Thursday by 8 p.m. Face masks are optional in all SPPS buildings and on school transportation when Ramsey County's COVID-19 community levels are low or medium. SPPS families and staff will be notified if community levels are high and face masks are required.
All SPPS staff, students and visitors/contractors are encouraged to use the SPPS COVID-19 reporting system. Data reflect all staff (instructional and non-instructional), students (PK-12) and visitors/contractors regardless of current service placement or setting (distance or in-person).
Numbers between one and four reports are suppressed and show "Count<5", while blank site information means no reports were submitted for that time period.
Positive cases submitted by site include staff, students and other contractors/visitors who were onsite up to two days prior to a positive test result. Positive cases at the district level include all COVID-19 reports and positive cases submitted by staff, students and other contractors/visitors regardless of whether or not the person was onsite.
The reporting system allows for updates to initial reports. Due to the constantly changing environment surrounding COVID-19, this data will be continuously updated to reflect, as accurately as possible, all reports and positive cases. The COVID-19 Reporting System went live on August 20, 2020. Data are updated daily on a one day lag.
